Cheapest Electric Bikes : Best Electric Bikes Under £800

Cheapest Electric Bikes UK

Electric Bikes or eBikes look and feel like any other type of bike, albeit with a little help from the electric motor at times. Types of electric bike include mountain bikes, hybrids and even foldable electric bikes, each with a rechargeable battery and power modes to suit the individual cyclist and specific terrain. The electric motor help to power the bike, providing you with power assisted pedalling when you need a little help, sometimes on a hill or incline, and sometimes when you are recovering from an illness or injury. The electric motor helps to make pedalling easier and thus makes cycling more fun. With an eBike pedal as normal but the addition of the motor means you get some assistance, which is particularly useful on hills and for those looking to build up their fitness levels. Our guide to how electric bikes can help with fitness covers this in more detail.

Electric Bikes have become very popular and in this article we look at the entry-level bikes, in particular cheap electric bikes and identify the best of the cheapest bikes under review. To ensure we focus on quality, we’ve excluded any bike with a low customer rating, and only those bikes with a sales history in the UK. We have also only reviewed bikes for adults, electric bikes in the style of a mountain bike, road bike or hybrid bike. As such, we have not included foldable electric bikes, electric scooters or bikes with conversion kits.

1. Hyuhome Electric Bike Review

The Hyuhome eBike is the cheapest electric bike in the UK and is also the best seller on Amazon. The Hyuhome bike has a customer rating of 4 stars and has been the number one electric bike on Amazon for quite some time.

The design is based on a standard hybrid or mountain bike and incorporates front suspension forks for added comfort over uneven terrain. The ergonomic design will ensure a comfortable ride, even over longer rides, and the anti-slip mountain bike tyres help to maintain control and safety on slippery road or trail surfaces. The bike is supplied with bright LED headlights to enable night-time cycling

Despite the Hyuhome being the cheapest electric bike in our review, it is by no means under-equipped. The large capacity 350W 36V electric motor delivers high speeds, where appropriate, and the powerful rechargeable 13Ah battery enables rides of up to 50 miles (80 km), across flat even roads and gradients up to 30 degrees. The battery can be charged on or off the bike frame, making it easy to charge in the home, garage or office in around 3-4 hours.

This electric bike is well-designed and has 3 cycling modes; pure electric mode, PAS mode and pure human riding mode, ie. no electric motor engaged. This allows you to adapt to various road conditions and riding styles as you begin to travel further distances with your new bike, engaging the electric motor when you need a little boost.

The Hyuhome Electric Bike has lockable front suspension forks, front and rear disc brakes design and 21 gears from leading bicycle component manufacturer, Shimano. It is available in a number of colours; blue, red, yellow and several battery power options; 8Ah, 10Ah, 13Ah.

2. Victagen Electric Bike Review

Part of the challenge with electric bikes is concealing the battery, or at least reducing its visibility, and the Victagen does a good job of this by integrating the battery within the bike frame. The battery in this model is what I’d consider entry-level at 8Ah but this does mean it’s lighter than more powerful options. Gears come from Shimano, which is always good to see and with a wheel size of 27.5-inch this bike will have a little more presence than those with 26-inch wheels. Customers rate this bike at 5 stars (at the time of writing) but only from a small handful of customers.

3. IC Electric Bike Review

If we had an award for best looking electric bike, this IC Electric would win by a long way. It’s beautiful sleek design looks very modern, almost iconic. The IC Electric Alfa bike model is aimed at cyclists looking for design, agility, simplicity and speed. Incorporating a smart system, aiding automation when required, without the need for mechanical change to enable smooth cycling. The IC Electric is lightweight, at just 17 kg, and features five-spoke 20-inch wheels and a 240W electric motor.

IC Electric ALFA Electric Bicycle, Silver, One Size.
  • Gear shift: Smart Assistance, without adding mechanical changes.
  • Brakes: Front and rear disc, Mono suspension Zoom.
  • Front fork: Rigid, alloy aluminum.
  • Brakes: Front and rear disc,

4. Swifty Electric Bike Review

The Swifty electric bike has a lightweight aluminium frame with 27.5-inch wheels and all terrain tyres for added grip and stability. The Panasonic 36V 9.6Ah lithium-ion battery will deliver an average range of 30 miles but this will depend on a variety of factors, including speed, acceleration, terrain and other riding elements. Features include Shimano 7-speed gears and derailleur plus 3 assist modes, including walking mode which engages the electric motor from a standing start up to 5mph. Swifty provide a 2 year manufacturers warranty on battery, motor and componentry as standard but this excludes tyres and inner tubes. Bike assembly is straightforward but there is a dedicated support helpline if needed.

Sale
Swifty Electric Mountain Bike, Black/Orange
  • Panasonic 36V 7.65ah Lithium ion battery, with average range of 30 miles on one full charge
  • High quality componentry with lightweight alloy frame, Shimano 7-speed gears and TY-21 rear derailleur with 27.5" CST all terrain tyres
  • 3 levels of assist setting, with additional walking mode which engages the motor from a standing start up to 5mph
  • 2 year manufacturers warranty on battery, motor and componentry included as standard (excluding tyres and tubes) with dedicated support helpline for any issues you might face

5. Bunao Electric Bike Review

The Bunao is supplied with a basic, but sufficient, 36V 8Ah battery that delivers 250W power via the brushless electric motor to the lightweight bike frame, enabling a range of around 25 miles in normal riding conditions. The rechargeable battery can be charged either on or off the bike frame for added convenience. The gear shifters and rear derailleur are simple and straightforward to use and the Bunao features 3 modes via the smart button controls. The bike has 21 gears, front and rear disc brakes and is ideal for everyday commuting or leisure cycling. The option to add a burst of speed with the throttle is ideal for when you need that extra power boost and added fun.

6. HSART Electric Bike Review

The HSART electric bike is a mirror image of the Hyuhome bike, so much so that the same images are used on Amazon. Specifications are also the same so the chance is that these are mass produced bikes, rebranded to suit different customers. This is standard practice in many markets (computers, televisions, cars) so there’s nothing untoward, just go for the Hyuhome bike at present as it’s cheaper. The specification for this HSART bike is listed below so you can compare it to the other bikes, and see the full spec.

7. Hiriyt Electric Bike Review

The design of the Hiriyt is very much the look and feel of a mountain bike, with the 36V 8Ah battery neatly tucked under the aluminium alloy frame. The front forks are made from strengthened carbon steel materials, encasing front suspension for added comfort. The lithium battery supports a range of around 15 miles (25km) in eBike mode and up to 30 miles (50km) in assisted mode. Other features include fast battery charging (4-6 hours), ergonomic handlebars, adjustable saddle height and anti-slip tyres. Other safety features include a bright LED headlamp and a horn, perfect for warning others and night riding.

8. Ancheer Electric Bike Review

The designers of the Ancheer bike have made a feature of the battery on this electric bike and I suspect it’s going to be a bit of a marmite moment, with some people hating it, and others not even noticing. The battery itself is a 36V 8Ah lithium-ion battery that’s used to deliver power to the 250W electric motor, which can be removed from the frame when recharging at home or in the office after your commute. Components include front and rear mechanical disc brakes, 21-speed gears for cycling on all gradients, a horn and bright LED lights for riding in low-light conditions or just for greater visibility. There are 3 assistance modes; eBike, assisted cycling, normal cycling.

9. Oppikle Electric Bike Review

As there are similarities between the Hyuhome and HSART bikes, the Oppikle bike looks very similar to the Hiriyt bike. Specifications are shown below and in the comparison table at the bottom of the page so you can compare models and specifications, and if like me, you think they are fundamentally the same bike, then you may just want to buy the bike based on price and customer reviews. Having said that, both score an almost perfect 5 stars and prices are very close.
